Restaurant Los Portales
Ranked #8 of 33 Restaurants in Matamoros
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 July 2017 via mobile

This restaurant has been around longer than I've been alive! Known for specializing in its open fire, Ranch style cooking of whole baby goat; and the many ways of preparing the "cabrito"! They cook an asssortment of other meats as well.
Ask about the charcoal hot plates! They bring your cuts of meats to the table on a hot plancha where you get to finish cooking your meats to your perfection!

Took my father here on a recent visit and he recalled the place from an earlier business trip to Matamoros 25 years ago. He said it had not changed at all. The decor is pretty old but classic, with some saddles on display and a small kids play area in the back. They have breakfast as well, but are best know for their cabrito and bring you a grill to the table. We found the service to be excellent, but it was not very crowded the night we visited. Staff was very friendly and our young children even liked it. They also had live music available if you're willing to pay for each song. Not excellent, but enjoyable. We'll definitely return.

Love their food,from the cabrito to their tampiqueña plate. Great service and atmosphere. Food is brought to you table on a grill to keep it warm, you decide how well you want your meat cooked.
